Slough South Update July 2022

Alert message sent 29/07/2022 12:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

The Neighbourhood Team
The Geographic Neighbourhood Team for Slough dedicates officers to specific areas. Slough is split into three sectors: North, South and East. Each sector has a sergeant and a team of PCs and PCSOs working to the neighbourhood areas. The South covers the broad areas of Cippenham, Chalvey, Town Centre and Upton. The South is covered by myself, Sergeant Gary Ryan.

I am pleased to introduce PCSO Danyal Ghazi to the Police Community Support Officer role in Slough. He is now based on the South team, primarily in Cippenham. He has recently finished being tutored and is now out and about on independent patrol.

We have a number of PC and PCSO vacancies on the team currently which we are recruiting into, both internally and externally. Join our team and help protect our communities. #proudtobeTVP

School Patrols
The PCSOs will rotate around the schools on area to provide hi-visibility presence at the beginning and end of the school days. They do various talks and presentations to pupils. They have worked with the schools over the past term to achieve this. They are there to be approached by you, so you can share any issues or problems within the area you live.

Burglary ‘cocooning’
When a burglary is reported to the Police, the neighbourhood team will do door knocks in the area of the burglary providing crime prevention advice to residents to try and prevent further thefts and deter criminals.
The most important crime prevention advice I can give to deter burglars is to make sure you lock your UPVC door and not just pull it shut! With the warm weather upon us, please ensure all doors and windows are secured on leaving your property.
For more crime prevention advice please visit the Thames Valley Police website.

Empty Care campaign
If the neighbourhood team come across a vehicle that has valuables on show or any insecurities they will attempt to make contact with the owner to make them aware and remove them. Earlier in the year the team worked with SBC to try and reduce Theft From Motor Vehicles in a town centre car park. The car park was patrolled regularly, crime prevention passed to users of the car park and the security of the site improved. Together this reduced thefts from cars in that area.

Town Centre
The team attend the Slough Town Against Crime meeting called STAC to provide updates on crime and what is being done to address repeat offenders. Present at the meeting is the BID team, SBC and representatives from some of the shops on the High Street.
A police operation (Op Rasure) was run on Slough High Street during May. Police officers from the Tasking Team and other departments patrolled the High Street providing a visible presence to deter and deal with violent crime. The operation focused on reducing violent crime, ASB, robbery and burglary offences. The officers arrested 17 suspects for various offences ranging from rape to possession of offensive weapons. The police officer presence on the High Street helped to disrupt antisocial behaviour (ASB) on the High Street such as street drinking and aggressive begging.
The Problem Solving Team, also part of Neighbourhood Policing Team at Slough, have had some good results: they arrested a subject from London for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and crack cocaine); they arrested a Wanted male for burglary where they located him on the high street and found in possession of bolt croppers; shopliftings at Sainsbury’s have reduced by half through ongoing work with the team which is a really positive.
The PST have targeted repeat offenders on the High Street resulting in them getting arrested and remanded to prison. The Neighbourhood team will look to obtain criminal behaviour orders on repeat offenders, prohibiting them from entering the town centre.
Further good work includes: a repeat offender on the High Street who was regularly offensive to shop staff and the BID wardens was arrested, and remanded to court where they have been found guilty; the PCSOs for the team have spotted numerous wanted people on the High Street who have been wanted for various offences, many of these have been arrested and put before a court. A lot of these people are involved in town centre crime and all contributes to reducing crime on the High Street.

Chalvey Week of Action
The team worked with the Chalvey Community Partnership (CCP) & ROC on their week of action which ranged from litter picks to a community events at the Jubilee Riverside Centre. The events were well attended by the community. The events allowed the CCP to promote the positive work they are doing in the community with introducing the Safer Shop Scheme, being awarded a grant for the Safer Street project which was used to add a footpath and lighting to Chalvey Rec and cut back vegetation in Chalvey Alleyways to make them safer for people to use. To become involved with this activity please visit Chalvey Community Partnership

The team attended the Cippenham Carnival on Saturday 2nd July, lovely afternoon with lots of people coming to talk to the team about issues in their area or asking about crime prevention. We had a few people asking about job opportunities in the police, especially about PCSOs.
The Cippenham team have attended the Cippenham Resident association meeting and spoken with residents about issues in the area and provided crime prevention advice.
